The M404 Special Lightweight Attack Munition, better known as the SLAM is a UNSC high explosive device used for a variety of purposes, including light demolition, explosive entry and sabotage.
The SLAM is often issued to forces operating in urban areas or special forces units requiring light weight explosives for sabotage or other uses. The charge is often used for blowing locks off doors, blowing entire doors down when used in pairs, demolition of small targets, such as transformer boxes, fuse boxes, computers, stationary enemy material, etc.
The SLAM consists of a powerful shaped charge that can fit into the palm of a hand. A thin EXCALIBUR sheet provides the penetrator and the explosive is attached to a simple five second electronic charge, with option for manual detonation or remote detonation. The powerful charge can blow through a thick steel plate.
